Officially formed on December 2nd, 1971, the United Arab Emirates is comprised of seven great cities – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Umm Ul Quwain. With a population of close of ten million, this is one of the fastest growing nations in the GCC, drawing both entrepreneurs and tourists from all over the world to its vibrant open society.
In 2021, the UAE celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding. Octanium Experiences LLC pays homage to this landmark event with the first ever 1000 Miglia Experience UAE in December 2022.
The UAE boasts some of the strongest draws in the Middle East. From the astounding, immense cultural showcase that was Expo 2020, to the high-octane thrills of Yas Marina Circuit, the UAE is the key destination for any tourist visiting the Middle East. Adrenaline seekers are well served from attractions from skydiving to dune bashing, zip-lines to deep sea diving. Those passionate about discovering local culture can explore the charming outdoor Souks and the expansive museums, including the world famous Louvre in Abu Dhabi. And when dusk falls, visitors can enjoy some of the region’s finest shopping, entertainment shows and nightlife.
Visitors in December are fortunate to experience the peak month of the UAE winter season, with a near-perfect daytime average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and minimal humidity. To make conditions even more attractive, rainfall is general absent – though every seasoned 1000 Miglia competitor knows to pack an umbrella just in case!
All participants and guests are expected to follow the UAE guidelines for COVID-19 safety applicable during the period of the event, including requirements for mask-wearing, vaccination checks and frequent sanitization.
